    It's really difficult to find 22 ammo. Last year While on vacation in PA a number of gun shops had it in supply so I bought some and brought it back home. Who would have ever thought 22 ammo would be so difficult to get? I find it funny I can buy 9mm all day long but the 22 ammo shelf is empty.
